Do you want to volunteer with Brighton & Hove Arts Council?
Whatever your talent there is something that you can try your hand at – from organising events and setting up new art galleries to strategic insight to further develop benefits for our members, and social media. Check out theAbout page on this website to see more of what we do.
To help get you inspired, we asked some members of the team to share their experiences:
“As part of the events team for the Poetry Competition and Festival, I get enormous satisfaction pushing the boundaries. I think attracting the poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy to head up the event is a testament to the importance of our role in the development of the Arts in Brighton, Hove and Sussex.” Jason Patrick Squire, Sponsorship & Events Manager
“Seven years ago a friend at work asked if I could help typeset a news-sheet for BHAC. It was a single A4 sheet, in black and white that was then printed onto coloured paper. This was Artslink in 2010. My friend’s name was Helen, wife of Andrew, who had been producing the Arts Diary since the beginning in 1974. Little did I realise how much BHAC would change in seven years, or that I would one day be producing the Arts Diary myself. It has been great to be part of such an amazing team.” Milla Hills, Arts Diary Editor
“My time as Chairman of BHAC has all been about people: my brilliant and dedicated colleagues on our Executive Committee, and the extraordinary range of creative and wonderfully talented members I have encountered, through the Drama Awards, the Art Exhibitions, the Poetry Competitions and much more. A common thread has been that everyone seems so positive and alive, and so much fun!” Vaughan Rees OBE, BHAC Chairman
“It really is a pleasure to work alongside such a diverse group. Working in digital in Brighton is great, but having this kind of connection to the arts and such a long-held cause truly is rewarding.” Jennifer Le Roux, ArtsLink Editor
